Okinawan Karate online lessons

Introducing the karate of Hanashiro Chomo

Through this website I present a series of in-depth video courses covering the karate of Hanashiro Chomo; one of the art’s foremost progenitors on Okinawa.

Preserving eighteen kata of the Shuri tradition, this online project presents the earliest versions of several popular karate kata practised today. Accompanied with complete bunkai and auxiliary exercises, this content is already ‘filling in the gaps’ for karate-ka seeking a fuller understanding of their art’s origins.

You can learn more about this project and what qualifies me to present it here.

Choose a tier to suit your level of interest

I offer three levels of subscription to suit your interest. Each tier is charged monthly and offers a range of benefits.

I’ve written about the Hanashiro Kata Project, and what it includes here.
These online courses have been designed with beginners and advanced karateka in mind. Your investment directly supports me to keep creating quality content and together we’ll build a nourishing study group that already has members on four continents.
